During last night's 2007 Black Entertainment Television Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, the American Idol 3 seventh-place finisher took home best actress and best new artist honors for her portrayal of powerhouse singer Effie White in director Bill Condon's critically-acclaimed 2006 film adaptation of Broadway's Dreamgirls musical.

"I can't believe I'm still winning awards!" exclaimed Hudson upon being named best actress, according to People.

Hudson's Dreamgirls performance has been a best supporting actress goldmine for the 25-year-old, as she has claimed numerous awards -- from the Golden Globe and Oscars to the Screen Actors Guild and British Academy of Film and Television Arts -- for her portrayal of White.

In addition to taking home two awards at the annual BET ceremony, Hudson also performed a duet of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" with Jennifer Holliday, who first recorded the Dreamgirls song following her Tony Award winning role in the Broadway musical in 1981.
